About Me

I work to empower people through technology and help them engage with it critically. I wear many hats in my work, including those of director, technologist, teacher, designer, and librarian. I specialize in the creative use of new technologies for teaching, in disciplines as diverse as Art & Architecture, Computer Science, Film Studies, International Relations, Music, and more.

With my training as a historian of technology and as a programmer, I’ve come to believe that combination is the heart of innovation. An exciting part of my work has been collaborating to create the Media Lab in the Art Building at Mount Holyoke College as an interdisciplinary learning space, where unexpected combinations can arise naturally. Whether I’m teaching students how to make interactive software or building a robotic camera mount, I love working at the intersection of art and technology.
